Daisy Themed Wedding Ideas

Daisy theme wedding ideas are perfect for a spring, summer or even fall wedding, due to the multiple hues and varieties of daisies. A sweet alternative to the popular rose, daisies are a top wedding flower choice for many couples.

Accent Attire With Daisies

Everyone in the bridal party can include daisies in their attire.

Bride and Groom

All eyes are on the bride as she walks down the aisle, so buy a wedding dress with daisy floral accents. Look for one that features embroidered or beaded daisies around the bodice or waistline of the dress. The groom can wear a vest with a daisy embroidered on it and have daisies pinned to his lapel.

Bridal Party

Bridesmaids can wear daisies in their hair and earrings and necklaces featuring the flower. The bride could also purchase a broach to pin on the bridesmaids waists. Have everyone carry a hand-tied bouquet of daisies. Pin a single daisy boutonnière on the lapel of the groomsmen and usher's suits. They could be smaller versions of the groom's or a different color of bloom.

Children

Look for matching styles of dress and jewelry for the flower girl so she reflects the bridal style. Have her carry a basket covered in daisies and weave a daisy chain through her hair. Accent the ring bearer pillow with a large daisy on the top.

Invitations and Programs

Begin with sending out wedding invitation cards that have a daisy motif. Match the wedding program to the invitations using a daisy design. Choose a program with a daisy photo or daisy clip art. A stamped daisy, embossed daisy or even a daisy charm are other ways to incorporate a daisy into the program.

Ceremony Decorations

The charming daisy flower creates an appealing setting for the wedding ceremony. While the daisy bridal bouquets are often the focus at the ceremony, you don't want to neglect other areas where decorations will bring out your theme.

Guest Book and Card Table

Greet guests at the ceremony entrance with gorgeous daisy bouquets. Mix daisies with roses and peonies for a luxurious floral design. Add them on slim cocktail tables near the book and card table.

Aisle and Window Décor

Beautiful daisies can be added in multiple places throughout the ceremony.

  • Place candles in windowsills using daisies as an accent. Look for candleholders with daisy decorations or place daisies around a large pillar candle.
  • Wrap daisies in a garland around banisters, candelabras or railings as the location allows.
  • Place daisy wreaths or hang kissing balls at the ends of guest seating instead of the typical bow.

Arrangements

Use daisies in wedding altar flowers and other wedding flower arrangements throughout the ceremony location. Daisies are available in silk, so it is possible to have daisy theme wedding ideas even if you are not using real flowers.

Reception Decorations

As with all themes, a daisy theme can be as simple or extravagant as the couple chooses to make it. For example, you could aim a daisy shaped spotlight on the dance floor or have a daisy ice sculpture in the center of the wedding buffet or dessert table.

Arches and Backdrops

Set the tone with a large daisy-covered arch entrance to the reception areas. Add a fabric backdrop behind the head table. Hang a large floral display featuring daisies in your wedding colors, along with greenery and other blooms, at the top.

Casual Daisy Centerpieces

Daisies are easily turned into casual centerpieces without a lot of effort. A few ideas include:

  • Place single daisies in small mason jars with ribbons tied around them.
  • Float daisy heads in large bowls of water.
  • Tie burlap and lace around a vase of daisies and other blooms.
  • Add daisy centerpieces in mason jars to a larger centerpiece display that features succulents.

Elegant Centerpieces

While daisies often accent a more informal wedding, you don't need to skip them if you want a more elegant look to your nuptials. For an upscale centerpiece, select a large vase that stands above the table. Use only white daisies and tie a ribbon around the vase to dress it up a little more.

Additional Small Touches

While the entry, head table, and centerpieces are frequently the focus of the decorating scheme, don't forget to add a few more touches to complete the reception.

  • Feature a daisy on table place cards.
  • Add a daisy to the napkin ring on each place setting.
  • Move large daisy altar arrangements to the reception and place them in corners and on shelving.
  • Add daisies to the center of chair ribbons. Tuck them into the bow.

Wedding Cake

Daisies can be cut out of fondant or molded using gum paste or fondant and placed across large tiered cakes. The blooms can be set on a top tier in a miniature bouquet resembling the bride's, too. However, it's often easiest to include daisies on a simple wedding cake with fresh flowers.

Daisy Favors

Send guests home with a little piece of the wedding theme by choosing a wedding favor with daisies. Tie a wedding favor box with ribbon and affix a faux daisy head to the top. Look for bookmarker favors with daisies, give guests daisy seed packets or even send daisy cookie cutters home with guests so they remember the wedding day each time they bake cookies.

Daisy Themed Wedding Memories

After the wedding, send thank you notes to guests and helpers with a daisy theme. Choose a wedding photo album and picture frames with daisies for displaying beautiful memories of the wedding day.
